I dont think any of us have any issue with the facts being reported. Problem is that at this stage the only facts out are that a 767 did a missed approach because of a configuration warning, and that its being investigated.
So when it's reported on the news that the pilots thought the other one had put the gear down, that the plane wasn't responding to inputs after setting go around thrust, that the pilots had been fired etc etc, you can see why we'd have a go at the media. Until the ATSB report is out its a best purely speculative and shows the media not only don't know what happened, but also have no idea about the operation or the investigative process. Why not wait until the ATSB report is out before we lump the guys in with the clowns in local government :P
